LHT: Norwegian Air Shuttle extends wheels & brakes services contract
Norwegian Air Shuttle ASA and Lufthansa Technik have recently extended the current wheels & brakes services contract for the airline's Boeing 737 fleet.
The new contract runs over a period of seven years and also covers pooling and home-base lease services for Norwegian Air Shuttle's growing Boeing 737-800 fleet which currently comprises 69 aircraft.
To guarantee an optimized supply chain to Norwegian Air Shuttle Lufthansa Technik has developed an extended logistics concept, which now ensures a "door-to-door" connection between the Lufthansa Technik site in Frankfurt and Norwegian Air Shuttle's main bases in Oslo, Stockholm and Copenhagen.
The two companies started their comprehensive business cooperation with a total component support for Boeing 737-300 six years ago. Later on, landing gear services, wheels & brakes services for the Boeing 737-800 and engine maintenance services for the CFM56-7B engines of Norwegian's fleet were added.
